Get your career on course with the Learning Collaboration


Do you need to learn how to lead people - or how to manage them for the first time? Do you want to know about product management for technical markets? If so, Cambridge Network's Learning Collaboration has a course for you coming up soon.


Transition to Leadership on Thursday 16 & Friday 17 June (a host venue is required) is an interactive, reflective and highly practical course, leading to concrete actions to achieve success through positive and engaging leadership behaviours.

Promotion makes us managers - but often with no man management experience or training. We sink or swim and our people sink or swim with us. Some of us are good at 'getting it done'  - but what damage may we cause along the way?

We all have our own natural leadership style, but unless we are aware of it we will be unable to flex when required, and the morale and resilience of the team will be negatively affected.

This two day event is designed to highlight what is important, what you currently 'measure up to' and where you can change to ensure greater leadership success.
